Iwami-ginzan (silver mine), rat poison
Aren't there any,
aren't there any naughty kids
around here? What!
This boymimics my selling cry like a parrotand wouldn't stop.
You laugh at my gentle voice
that it sounds like cat?
It's none of your business, boy! It therefore
charms rats, you know?
I'll let your mother know about your mischief
when you cheek adults like this.
What? You are welcome, you say?
Well, I'm thoroughly helpless against such talkative mouth as yours, boy.
